In this lecture performance, actress Sharon Frese explores the history and influence of the African diaspora in Singapore. Dredging the archives, she shares images and documents relating to slavery, colonialism, jazz and nationalist struggle, reaffirming the value of black culture as part of our shared heritage.This event is both a history lesson and a theatrical ritual. The creators commemorate the untold numbers of black men and women—enslaved, indentured and expatriate—who crossed the oceans into unknown territory. They draw strength from these tides, which Indian convicts called the “black water”—in Hindi “kala pani”, or in Malay “ayer hitam”.Please note that this venue is not wheelchair accessible.This production is presented with support from Centre 42.

Hanane, a fifty-something year old Lebanese actress and citizen, exercises daily to avoid osteoporosis, obesity, and depression.As she takes walks through both secluded and open spaces in Beirut, she revisits dreams, desires, hopes, disillusionments, characters and roles—most of which reveal themselves to be contemporary Medeas with whom she shares some commonalities.The effects of this daily routine of jogging are contradictory. Her body is stimulated through exercise with two hormones, dopamine and adrenaline, both alternating between destruction and construction. Their natural cycles within Hanane—woman, wife and mother—echo that of her city, one that destroys to build and builds to destroy.Winner of the Vertebra Prize for Best Actor at Summerhall/Edinburgh Festival FringeCo-produced by: Heinrich Bol Stiftung Middle East, Embassy of Switzerland in Lebanon and British Council LebanonWith the support of:Arab Fund For Arts and Culture, Lebanese Ministry of Culture and Robert A. Matta Foundation

In an Instant: Polaroid at the Inte...
In an Instant: Polaroid at the Intersection of Art and TechnologyIn an age where apps provide instant services and smartphones allow us to capture just about anything and everything in an instant, the culture of now has never been so prevalent. Its origins can arguably be traced back to the late 1940s when Edwin Land first introduced the Polaroid camera to the world, marking a technological breakthrough in the history of photography. Instant photography was born, predating the digital age in which we live today. Polaroid’s unique qualities inspired artists and photographers including Andy Warhol, Ansel Adams, Lucas Samaras and Barbara Crane, while capturing the imagination of everyone else. Allowing people to share their pictures with a click of the shutter – memorialising that special moment in a matter of seconds – Polaroid was very much the social network of its time. Through a wide range of Polaroid artworks and artefacts, this exhibition offers insight into the story of Polaroid photography, while exploring the impact of instant photography and this social phenomenon of instantaneity on us today.Image caption: © The Guy Bourdin Estate 2018 / Courtesy of Louise Alexander Gallery

TPM: Amek Gambar (Taking Pictures) ...
The invention of photography in 1839 led to a revolutionary way of understanding and seeing the world. By 1841 the technology had arrived in Singapore, and gradually spread throughout Southeast Asia. The Peranakan community was among the earliest resident groups to be photographed. The first images of babas and nyonyas that survive were taken in about 1857.Peranakans were quick to exploit the potential of the new visual form. From ritual spaces to personal albums, from intimate lockets to social media, the presence of the photographic image in Peranakan cultural life in the last 160 years reveals the typically diverse ways an old community has grappled with this visual medium in expressing identity, tradition, locality, modernity, nationality, and art.The exhibition includes studio and amateur photographs of Peranakans across Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Myanmar. In celebration of a donation by Mr and Mrs Lee Kip Lee of more than 2,500 photographs to the Peranakan Museum, this exhibition explores the multifaceted role of photography in the lives of Peranakans.
